Real-Time rendering and Immersive Virtual Reality | Edificius MEP | ACCA software

Take a tour of the BIM model in an interactive immersive Virtual Reality experienceto check every single detail and see your system as if it were already built.

You have an intuitive and adaptive "Smart MEP" modeler with intelligent component connections and automatic alignments

Edificius MEP is feature-packed with unique design tools in the panorama of BIM modelling for MEP systems thanks to innovative 2D/3D modelling functions.

Forget working in 2D plan or section view to model your MEP systems - as you would with other "BIM Authoring" MEP modeling software - to model your systems: with Edificius MEP you can finally deal with systems modelling in a simple and intuitive way also by working directly in 3D view with dedicated parametric objects.

The “Smart MEP” modeler makes the software behave adaptively showing exactly what the user expects automatically.

The individual elements (pipes, ducts, accessories, etc.) can be positioned using functions that simplify modelling operations with, intelligent connections alignment tools and automatic orientations.

Thanks to the intelligent connection ports, everytime a MEP object is added to the system, it is automatically adjusted and modified both from a geometric point of view (diameter, width, height, etc.) and in shape (inserting elbow joints, curves, fittings, etc...) for a correct and seamless connection with other components.

LODs design flows and manage | Edificius MEP | ACCA software

Follow design flows and manage LODs

With Edificius MEP you have the advantage of designing mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems while continuing to operate on the same model accessing an enormous amount of information.

The high level of detail that can be achieved with the simplicity and naturalness of Edificius MEP allows you to concentrate on the best possible technical solutions and verify them immediately integrating architecture, structural, installation systems or other components of the building.

The natural and intuitive workflow of Edificius MEP allows you to define the project LODs in a progressive way. Model the system using 3D parametric objects and when the appropriate degree of design detail is reached, it replaces the parametric objects with the corresponding manufacturer object..

This workflow does not force the designer to populate the project catalog in advance with hundreds of commercial objects during the modeling phase and contributes to making the whole MEP modelling process much easier and straight-forward to manage.

Create infinite BIM objects | Edificius MEP | ACCA software

Create an infinite BIM objects library with the parametric MEP object configurator

With Edificius MEP you have free access to the rich BIM Objects Library containing the different types of pipes and ducting sections (mechanical, electrical and plumbing), fittings (curves, joints, transitions, plugs), special accessories, equipment and terminals (sanitary, heating systems , kitchen cabinets, etc.).

In addition, with the BIM MEP objects configurator, you create any specific component or installation system during the project design process.

After configuring the object, you can "match" it with the corresponding market product, upload it to the online catalogue and automatically utilize it in all new projects.

It is a unique and innovative method for finding an object, which starts from defining its functional characteristics in the project, offering maximum design freedom without binding component choices to those available in the catalog..

Convert architectural objects into MEP objects | Edificius MEP | ACCA software

Convert architectural objects into MEP objects

With Edificius MEP you can transform 3D architectural objects into MEP objects and therefore design the MEP systems in consistency with other design choices, such as the furniture styles for instance.

All objects and 3D Models, useful for architectural representations (such as the sanitary appliances, kitchen furniture, heating systems, etc.) that are also part of the MEP system, can be converted into specific parametric MEP objects and customized with intelligent port connectors and other functional parameters for installations and systems modeling.

MEP object from 3D model | Edificius MEP | ACCA software

Create new MEP objects from 3D models

With the same guided procedure proposed for converting architectural objects, Edificius-MEP allows you to create a new MEP object starting from a 3D model:

  • import the 3D file (.ifc, .skp, .obj, .dae, etc.)
  • select the category and type of an object similar to the one you want to create
  • enter the geometric properties corresponding to the 3D model
  • define the characteristic technical data and the object custom properties
  • insert the port connectors
Import and export models IFC format | Edificius MEP | ACCA software

Import and export models in the IFC format to interact with any other BIM software

Edificius MEP, fully compliant with the IFC Open-BIM philosophy, can import an IFC format file, even if produced with other architectural "BIM Authoring" software such as Autodesk Revit®, ArchiCAD®, etc. and can seamlessly export the MEP model according to the IFC CV2.0-MEP standard for further system design workflows.

Thanks to advanced automatic object recognition functions, with Edificius MEP you can create a project starting from an IFC model created with other architectural, structural design software, etc.

LExport according to the IFC CV2.0-MEP standard applies to both the elementary objects and the "System": the grouping of objects that form the installations. The IFC model is then exported with the individual system objects categorized and ready for the subsequent design, verification and sizing phases by electrical and thermo-hydraulic designers.

The Edificius import and export features in IFC 2x3 format have the IFC Coordination View 2.0 certifications by buildingSMART International.
